  Skied the north 1/3 of the lower arb. Snow is hard packed and getting a little old, but has been rolled/compacted within the past day or two. Quite fast. Skier-made tracks. No rocks seen.
The arb has an archery deer hunt in progress in the lower arb for the whole month of December, but hunters are required to stay well away from the trails. Bright colored clothing still a good idea, though. Saw one hunter walking to his area and lots of deer tracks meandering around.

  Getting a little icy in some spots and some spots look to be getting a little thin, but overall pretty good coverage.

  I skate skied the upper arboretum trails starting around 5pm. The skate deck was firm and fast but not as firm as the man-made snow trails get. There are a couple thin/dirty snow spots to watch out for but they are easily avoided if you pay attention. There were no classic tracks set in the upper arboretum trails.

  Lower arb still good condition this afternoon. Followed skier tracks all around. No rocks. Beautiful!

  Upper Arb is very nicely rolled for skate. Or classic as you wish.
Lower Arb is skier-tracked for classic. Good conditions. There was a very occasional spot where the snow was sucked out of the track, but otherwise no concerns with good skis.
